Prejmer Citadel

Not far from Brasov lies Prejmer, the biggest fortified church in the Southeastern Europe built in the 14th century.
Inside its walls there is a church, but the interesting thing here is the honeycomb like inner wall. Every family had one small room for sheltering in case the village was attacked.

    Thanks for posting these, Ileana – I never got to Prejmer when we were in Transylvania (despite trying), and now I want to see it even more….Next year I will have to get on a plane and meet up with you for Bucharest, and then on for more exploration!! Homorod had some thick walls, but Prejmer looks like a whole village-in-a-wall…..

    Beautiful images. I visited there about four years ago, brings back memories. I met my wife in Romania 🙂

    Still have the joys of visiting central and eastern Europe to come–these pictures are another strong inducement!
